  • Jack manages to get into the compund and reunite with Teri and Kim. However Jack's escape plans are compromised when Gaines locates him.

    A truly excellent way to end the first half of season one. This episode was so good I almost did not want it to end. One of the big reasons is because Alberta Green's ego took a major hit. As I mentioned previously I think Alberta is too much contrived, I will admit it was fun seeing her face when she realizes she was wrong just about everything. That aside the scenes of Jack at Gaines' compound were excellent. A terrific blend of suspense and action. The climactic gun fight was damn near perfect. Well staged and even plausible. Not something you can say when it comes to big action sequences in movies. I just had a little bit of trouble concerning Dr. Ferragamo. The writers must be Rams fans. To get to the point, I just could not buy that so soon after Palmer spoke to Ferragamo that Carl was able to stage the gas explosion in Ferragamo's office so quickly. Despite that after repeated viewings this episode is nothing short of spectacular.moreless

  • Jack finds Teri and Kim.

    9.0
    The season is now moving forward with Jack finding the location of Teri and Kim but getting out of the compound was always the problem, especially when Gaines finds out that Jack is here to rescue his family It really didn't look good for Jack when he was cornered with lots of people shooting at him but he finds a way out of it but he and his family are on the run and the next episode will show whether they can get away from Gaines.moreless
  • GunFight and some suspense!!!!!!

    9.0
    Jack is infiltrated in the enemy territory, thanks to the false alan, to save his family. This creates certainz suspenseful situations and it seems that rick will be the casuality.



    His help is crucial for Jack to save his family and the audience fear more for rick life, because he is dispensable.



    Again, Nina and Tony are pressed to tell Jack location. This make the audience like tony more than before.



    Palmer Plot is on another level now, is scenes were filler, with only one important scene, the final scene.



    The final Scenes is filled with action.



    Overral, another great episode, with the necessary to catch your attention and interest.



    The Best par of this episode is the gunfight.moreless
  • Jack saving his family...

    9.2
    The first part of the episode is quite slow motion as the most of the thing is going around Palmer who seems not to be much action but instead a lot of intrigue. The things turn much interesting when Jack finally gets to the place where his family is held and goes to rescue with some stylish shots.. and ofcourse when in CTU things turn and Tony and Nina are arrested and they have time to think about what to say. The motion there is just broke in the right moment and I think we would have never wanted to hear what Tony had said - he was in lose:lose position and glad that he did not had to make the decision.



    And the end - the "accident" with the psychologist, Bauer and his family on run with that kid.. really great ending for 12 hour..moreless
